PUNXSUTAWNEY — When it comes to volleyball, the hitters get all the glory.

Their devastating kills leave the crowd in awe and the opposition in pain.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — For the first time ever, the Punxsy volleyball team will have four District IX Class AA/AAA All-Stars, as joining Player of the Year Hannah Neal are fellow upperclassmen Corri Snyder, Shawnna Crago and Tawnee Bowers.

This is the second-straight season that Crago has become an All-Star, while Bowers made the list for the first time.
